A 3D-animation video showing a black hole devouring a star has gone viral in just two days, accumulating over 160,000 views.
The mass of the black hole that several X-ray telescopes observed is 14 million times the mass of our sun.
Scientists codenamed the event (absorption of the star) as ASASSN-14li.
The Verge reports, citing the US space agency, that the galaxy, where the stunning phenomenon occurred, is located at a distance of 290 million light years away from Earth.
Having swallowed the star, the black hole transformed its remnants into a giant gaseous disk, while some of the stellar debris flew into space.
